Domaine de la Bretonniere, Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie. 2022
Get to know: Domaine de la Bretonniere, Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie
A French favourite from the Loire Valley, made using the Melon de Bourgogne grape. This is a wonderful light, dry white with an intense, complex nose. The palate is fruity with green apple, lemon and melon fruit and a dry finish.
Ideal as an aperitif or with fish and shellfish
"One of my favourite wines at this price. I love Muscadet - you get fresh citrussy, appley wines. This one is Sur Lie which means it has a bit more body and creaminess from time spent on its yeast. Great with oysters and other shellfish."
Established in the 1900s, the Cormerais family's winemaking passion and knowledge has been passed down for generations. Today it is Bertrand Cormerais who runs the estate having joined his father in 1994. The father and son team were also joined by Anthony Branger in 2015. 40 hectares of vineyard are divided between Muscadet and IGP Val de Loire. Bertrands philosophy is a very simple one - he starts in the vineyard with great attention to detail to produce the very best grapes he can, while maintaining great respect for the environment.
